City of Steam: Arkadia is a free-to-play browser-based MMORPG or, as its developers at Mechanist Games describe, an online RPG with MMO characteristics. This game is set in an industrial fantasy world that isn’t completely steampunk but contains such elements.
City of Steam allows players to wander in the city of Nexus, that serves as a hub, and engage in social activities, making new friends and then exploring the dungeons that abound in the game world. However, there’s the possibility to dive immediately in the dungeons without joining anybody, playing the game like an RPG and dispensing with the MMO part. Some dungeons will be most suited for a party but this is a game that tries to please both crowds. The different character choices will forge your path, determining the individual storylines and quests. The goal is to find out more about your family history, settle in your new home and rebuild (or destroy) the city of Nexus.
City of Steam is an accomplished game with as much of Diablo as of Guild Wars and one praiseworthy accomplishment by offering an immersive and beautiful game world that runs in a simple browser.
